Playing with cornstarch- NOT TO BAD, if it's outside


      Oh the fun times with sports. So far Dallyn isn't that good, but he is trying :), sometimes.
In the picture here he was the LAST one coming in from running. At first he was one of the first ones... then he got tired.
In the one where he's swing...if you notice his arms are a little off.
His first game is this Sat.

Broc in Gymnastics-

We just got Broc in gymnastics and he loves it!
As you can see, hanging is his favorite part.

A little free time and that's all it took for him to meet a friend!

Food for the Drew man?

Good old carrots

I did have to hold his hand through it all.
So does he like them???
Oh, yah!

Drew has a girlfriend?

True love? Maybe, but he's just to young... She'll have to wait.
Pretty much the best big brother. Dallyn is so great with Drew!
 I made Brandon a pan of brownies for his b-day, who needs plates when you have forks!
Yes, this hottie is 28!
Dallyn with his best buddy, Weston. Yes, he is that tall!
